Factoids on Radio 2

Is it meant to be ironic?

Half the 'facts' they come up with aren't even remotely true. Do they do that on purpose?

I know some are wrong because I've heard them and known them not to be true.

Like last week they said only humans sleep on their back. I have photographic evidence to the contrary.

But I don't care enough to actually call anyone.
The factoid about only humans sleep on their backs even I know thats not true because my ex husband used to sleep on his back...
